Chennai: Actor Kamal Haasan, who is hounded by a fringe outfit in Tamil Nadu, has expressed hope his government would take some inspiration from neighbouring Kerala and support him.

Haasan's reference was to how the Left government in Kerala acted decisively and brought to book prominent actor Dileep over charges that he conspired to get an actress abducted and sexually assaulted.

"She (the actress) got the full support of the law and justice system in Kerala. That's the difference between her situation and mine," Kamal said indicating the Tamil Nadu government was not doing much to support him.

A fringe outfit, Hindu Makkal Katchi (HMK), has filed a complaint against "Bigg Boss" saying it denigrated Tamil culture. The outfit sought legal action against Haasan and the actors participating in the show that is being telecast on Vijay TV since June 24, saying it ridiculed the "Invocation to Tamil mother (Tamil Thaai Vazhthu)".

The participants (actors) in the show allegedly conversed in an obscene fashion and sported revealing outfits, the outfit alleged.

The complaint sought legal action against the show's host and 14 other actors.

Kamal Haasan, using this attack by the right wing group against him, said he is left to the elements in Tamil Nadu but his neighbouring state (Kerala) takes care of people.

HMK representatives told reporters that the city police have acknowledged getting their complaint.
